We're all used to seeing fubars of Microsoft products and CEOs on TV, but the best part of this are the comments of the news anchor at the end. That was pure mockery.

Can't do, as this one doesn't allow me to play it some alternative way to Flash (and Gnash don't do video.google.com).

Believe it or not, I think it's MSNBC or CNBC... not positive though.

Last time I checked there should be a download link next to the video. It worked for me when the Powerbook was on Gentoo.

Obviously not on this one. (Most other video.google.com provide such links, dough)
Perhaps copyright issues? :lol:

I guess I might be able to get it in some other format than flash through some illegitimate channels if I'm really determined. Somewhat I doubt it's worth the effort :P
Perhaps someone should demand that Google starts pushing hard cash into the development of Gnash? :wink:

well, about my dupe here:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-485180-highlight-.html

if you would have used a more decent subject, or even would have mentioned "vista" in your post, i probably would have found that thread. yes, i used the searchfunction, and there was nothing about vista during the last 2 days refering to the funny oops they did.

never mind, but "seen this yet" gives the reader absolutly nothing :wink:
thats why the forums guidelines say:
Code:

Choose a good subject - Do not make your subject say just "Help gentoo newbie," nobody wants to hear this. Describe your problem briefly in your subject, then you can describe your problem in greater depth in the body of your article. Repeat the subject in the body if it will make things clearer. Avoid "subject says all" etc. A better subject might have been "X Windows crashes whenever I run program foo."

i am, because they did a similar mistake introducing win98 a few years ago (and represented a bluescreen).
or maybe they just think "any public relation is good public relation, either bad or good", hmm..

specially infact of vista - why would you like to present voice recognition? this never ever worked really good for anyone, right? every company sofar failed doing it.

Oh, the irony.

Anyone remember when the slate(ms owned) editors recommended switching to firefox?

Atleast the demostrator had a sense of humor. You could hear him laughing too. I'm sure he wasn't laughing that night when he was posting his resume. (I doubt he got fired for that)
